Beware of Pride


PROVERBS 16:18 NIV
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
Pride is deadly. But instead of warning us the world encourages pride in every way.
The root of pride is selfishness: putting yourself first.  Thinking you are the most important. Thinking you know the most. Thinking you deserve better than someone else.
Pride is the root of all sin. It causes you to turn away from God instead of turning to Him. All disobedience has pride as its root. All rebellion has pride behind it. All mistreatment of other people is caused by pride: putting yourself and your feelings above the other person and their feelings.
Pride is the most serious, and the most subtle, sin. It often
goes unrecognized.
Beware!

A note to dear readers

"Courage is not defined by those who fought and did not fall, but by those who fought, fell and rose again"
